Waiting on Wednesday: The Forbidden Wish

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

 I am waiting on:

The Forbidden Wish
Title: The Forbidden Wish
Author: Jessica Khoury
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication Date: February 23, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling, 
She is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world... 
When Aladdin discovers Zahra's jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn't seen in hundreds of years -- a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra's very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes. 
But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity—only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart?
As time unravels and her enemies close in, Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire in this dazzling retelling of Arabian Nights from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.
Why am I waiting?
A retelling of the story of Aladdin with a female genie! I have to read this one, and not just because Aladdin was one of my favorite Disney movies growing up. I like that this is also a love story and that Zahra has a tough choice to make. I am excited to see how Jessica Khoury recreates the story of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp.

What are you waiting on?
